Dewitt, NY Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fires can be a hazardous situation for Onondaga county properties. Being a suburb of Syracuse, there are many large commercial properties like Le Moyne College and Shoppingtown Mall, along with thousands of homes. We have efficient fire restoration and mitigation solutions to help.

What Mitigation Steps Help DeWitt Homes?

Mitigating fire damage means prioritizing the immediate and urgent needs of a damaged home or business after a fire loss event. As leading restoration professionals trained as FSRT-Certified technicians, we can offer several emergency services early in recovery like:

  • Smoke damage cleaning
  • Water removal services
  • Debris removal
  • Fire and smoke damage removal 

Clearing Odors After Structure Fires

Odors can be a common concern for households after extinguishing a fire. Combustion of materials and the spread of smoke particles can create offensive odors in many rooms of the house. Early actions like debris removal can lessen odor concentration, requiring less contact time for deodorization and filtration measures improving indoor air quality. 

Removing Soot from Damaged Surfaces in DeWitt Homes 

Solvents and detergents are fundamental products in removing and managing soot and smoke residue threats in a household after a fire. Thick soil deposits first require loose debris removal with vacuums and mechanical action. Still, solvents and detergents either emulsify or dissolve remaining soot particles to protect underlying substrates in many cases.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
